Harry’s prowess as a polo player has been talked about by his pal, Figueras, whom he met at a charity match for Sentebale in 2007.

In 2022, the polo player told People magazine that the duke is “very competitive,” adding, “He plays very well, he rides very well.”

“From day one, I saw how committed he was to his charity,” Figueras told the news outlet following the 2022 Sentebale Polo Cup in Colorado.
